3 quarts is 3 quarts. Can't mess with science.
yes the viscosity is different, but not by so much you would see one spew more than the next with the 2 oils stated.
Have you checked the oil? If so when, and how did it read?
Next, what about the air filter... did you inspect it? Is it saturated with oil already thus causing it to look like you are always dripping?
Like you say, HD has done this for years. Not every engine is the same. You need to find the sweet spot for your bike.
Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.
